Lewisham College hosted the annual Forterra Apprentice Challenge in bricklaying, with apprentices from various companies competing for first place. The competition consisted of bricklaying apprentices from companies from all over the UK, building a standard wall-header bond wall with detailed white bricks with a particular feature, LC for Lewisham College.
The winner of this year's competition was bricklaying company Lee Marley Brickwork, with apprentice challenge winners Conner Wills in first place and Liam Nunn in second place.
Lewis Duncan, a Bricklaying learner at Lewisham College and apprentice at Swift, said: "I had a great time participating in the challenge; it was an excellent opportunity to test my knowledge and skills with other bricklaying apprentices.
"Although the competition was tough, it helped me observe other apprentices' skills and how they work and see differences in the quality of work across various bricklaying companies. In addition, the competition was helpful as I have identified areas where I can improve."
Forterra, a leading UK manufacturer of essential clay and concrete building products, hosted and supplied the bricks for this year's Apprentice Bricklaying competition.
